Steph sits down with Sandy Gunn this week, a fellow recruiter and podcast host, to discuss what it means to be a jerk at work, and why we all need to be a little more human in the office. Sandy decided to start a podcast as a way for 3 friends in HR to sit down together and to share their stories and the lessons they had learned with a wider audience. The ultimate goal of the pod is to help others become better workplace humans, and to ask the question “How am I being a jerk at work?”.
Check out Sandy’s pod ‘Don’t be a Jerk at Work’ (hosted w. Tara Kemes and Sarah Markwick)
